PlayStation Network users in the US are being given access to an identity protection scheme. In Europe? Sony is working on it, saying the number of countries, companies and laws involved means it'll take a little longer to set up. [PlayStation]
I wonder how long Sony can keep the PSN free with that sort of protection. I imagine that must be costing them through their ass.
Of course, they have to worry more about PR and saving face at the moment, but once things settle down, I think they will seriously have to consider a Gold-like measure.
Speaking of Gold, how does their security compare to this AllClear ID?
